Seiyo no Shorin-Ryu Karate Kobudo Lineage
"If there is not kata, there is no karate - just kicking and punching".
-Sokeshodai Shoshin Nagamine, Okinawa
Presentation of Seiyo No Shorin-Ryu Karate & Juko Kai lineage to Soke Hausel by Dai-Soke Sacharnoski in Dallas in 2007 at 45th Anniversary of Juko Kai International. Dai-Soke Sacharnoski is considered by many to be the greatest living martial artist. To quote Soke Hausel, "In martial arts, there is no greater honor than training under the greatest living martial artist and having such a high-quality individual to look up to in life and martial arts. I owe much of my development and achievements in martial arts to Dr. Sacharnoski, Dai-Soke! Without his example, I would have only been another Instructor in a sea of Martial Arts Instructors".
The Hombu of Seiyo No Shorin-Ryu Karate Kobudo Kai(TM) operates independently from other dojo. All dojo Headmasters and Instructors are completely responsible for their own dojo and actions. We provide martial arts education, guidance & proper certification for members. Black belt Instructors of Seiyo No Shorin Ryu Karate Remnei are allowed to test their students for rank up to one level below their current rank.
